GOD’S INVISIBLE QUALITIES

God’s invisible qualities are present in our life.

~ Lisa Blair

Contrary to popular belief, too many of us, Christians, are blind to the invisible world God created for us. We do not see the pure wonderment of his Workmanship. The Arabic version says that His properties are invisible to us because they can only be known through the eternal power and Godhead. When we are aligned with the Father, and the Holy Spirit dwells in us, the beauty and magnificence of the world are revealed to us. We begin to see the light of nature that His people have enjoyed since the beginning of time.

We begin to see the unity in all things and start to understand that nature, man, and all of the things of this earth are one, created by the Great Creator. Our passion for God’s presence is present in all things. The revelation of his Supremacy becomes visible through the invisible realm of His creation.

If nothing else, this should turn us from our wicked ways, fall to our knees vowing obedience and dependence upon Him who created us and leave our heathen/worldly lifestyles behind.

I have a Christian friend who shared that he had fallen away from the Lord. It was a slow tug back into his old life and was awakened when he was struck with an illness and taken to ER. His words are – ‘always stay alert,’ stay in the spirit, and see the invisible workmanship of the Lord, humble yourself to His way, His will, and His light.

Acts 1:8, KJV reads:

“But ye shall receive power, after that, the Holy Ghost comes upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

In this scripture, power (dynamai) refers to strength, the force of power behind supernatural events, i.e., the creation of the earth and all that is in it; the power of Jesus to work miracles because He is God. The power is seen in the crucifixion of Christ.

As believer’s, we are called to witness to those who are blind and destined to live in what they see, the sins of this world. ‘Paul teachers that every man, that has known God or not has rejected this knowledge of God and replaced it with idolatrous thoughts of another of their own making.(one passion ministries)’ As witnesses, we must share the invisible workmanship and wonderment of God’s world, both supernatural and natural, they are gifts from God and His sacrifice made to open our eyes.

Romans 1:20 NLT (Tyndale House) reads:

20 From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. They can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God.

God’s invisible qualities are visible to those who believe. We have no excuses for falling short of denying ourselves and sharing the Good News.  Paul warned that God is not pleased with His followers who fall subject to their worldly sorrows, do not repent, and once again pick up their cross. We should do all we can to stay in God’s good graces. Do not look back to salvage your blinders. We have no excuses.

Rely On God To Fight Our Battles

Military commanders strategize before going into battle. The Lord is our Commander in Chief. He created the map of our life before we were born. Your strategy begins with going to God in prayer.

Military commanders strategize before going into battle. The Lord is our Commander In Chief. He created the map of our lives before we were born. Your strategy, for your best life, begins with going to God in prayer.

God created us to establish a bond between us, to engender a relationship. His love for us is more than anything we can imagine. He offers love, power, wisdom, knowledge, direction and instruction. If we allow Him, He will fight our battles.

Stillness is one of the most important conductivity points between God and us. We become still in prayer. The Bible is replete with information insisting that we become still, and quiet so the Lord can do His work. Let’s learn to still ourselves. This is a journey, practice every day. Sometimes removing the chaos that invades the quiet is difficult. I always feel these are the most critical times because Satan is trying to keep me from hearing what God is sharing with me (generally a pivotal moment), so I work harder to remove the noise. What about you?

Note: Some of my time spent with God is conversational, similar to that with a parent, at other times it is instructional and has broad implications.

Be Still, Experience Silence

If we cannot silence our thoughts, we cannot hear God. He won’t compete for our attention.

~Lisa Blair

Our lives are busy, we run to and fro trying not to miss a step. Our minds race, we never experience being still. One of my earlier posts shared that we can either learn to be still or as I once told my employees and students, we can suffer mandatory volunteerism. God gave me multiple opportunities but I did not take Him seriously. I gave one excuse after another. Finally, like any good Father, He took command and placed me in time out. He centered me in a place to be still, retirement, and told me to be still and listen to His quiet, still, voice.

God cannot lead us if we don’t take time to listen and converse with Him. He cannot converse with us if our minds don’t shutdown and release the static. You know, this type of static.

Stillness is the platform for establishing our relationship with our Lord. The scripture Psalm 46:10 reads, ‘Be Still and know that I am God’. There it is plan and simple, yet, so difficult to comprehend in a world were silence no longer exists.

This poem shares the concept of silence and how impactful conversations with God are on our lives.

Take time everyday for the next two weeks and learn to converse with God. Listen to what He has to say about your life and the steps that will lead you down your destiny pathway.  You will be renewed and no longer bound by self-talk, social media, and purposeless thoughts. You will experience love greater than you can imagine, peace greater that you thought possible, and a sense of who you are in Christ.

Christians Are Being Attacked


Christians are being attacked around the world. Many ambassadors and missionaries throughout the world are wounded, destroyed, and killed every day. Please add this prayer to your daily prayers to cover them as they share the Good News with non-believers and newly converted Christian groups.

~ Lisa Blair

PRAYER

Lord, Christians are being attacked, tortured, terrorized and killed, much like when you, Lord, were on earth. Please post your angels around all Christians under attack. Place angels in front of the attackers, murders, and abusers like you did when Elisha, the Prophet, prayed that you would open his servant’s eyes and see your angelic army surrounding (2 Kings 6:17) the enemy’s army. Let your Christian missionaries and ambassadors see your army wherever they go. Also, let the enemy see the angels shadows over them as they are plotting and planning in person or on social media, like the Internet, to destroy your people. Keep them from moving forward and cause them to abandon their plots in fear of your wrath.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
